It was a Portuguese fortress and even if the ones that defended it were heavily outnumbered neither the French neither the Dutch had any luck. right?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Tineye is cheating I assume? I know it, but I have no pictures of my own to post, so I won't answer.

Flatballer ... by the looks of things Paulo (PCP) has identified it but the Mystery Pic itself does not need to be from your own collection. It can be anywhere provided it is a sailing location. (I presume by TinEye you mean the photo server)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Tineye is a reverse image search.. you paste the image and it searches the net for it... so it might be considered cheating.... Up to Zanshin, as OP, I reckon.

OIC ...... didn't know that, thought TE was another Photo Bucket. sounds like cheating to me.

Heck this is all for fun ... no money in it so why bother with anything underhand ....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I hadn't come across Tinyeye before but I tried it with the images from this thread so far and it's success rate was less than I expected, probably because a lot of the pictures weren't sourced from the web. I did find a higher resolution picture of Hthoni's beach babe though. I think I'll just check any pics against Tinyeye before I post to make sure it can't be used.
